The War Office refer to three letters that have nothing to do with B. Columbia, but they omit to notice one, dated 4 July, enclosing an account for similar medical stores of £49.19. which has been paid. Perhaps it would be better before ordering payment, to point this out to the War Office lest we should pay twice for the same stores.
